HOUSTON (AP) — Bill Yeoman, the longtime Houston football coach who led the Cougars to four Southwest Conference titles and a school-record 160 victories, has died. He was 92. The university announced the death Wednesday without providing details. The school’s first inductee into the College Football Hall of Fame, Yeoman coached the Cougars from 1962-1986. In 1964, he signed running back Warren McVea as the school’s first Black football player. A lineman and team captain at Army, Yeoman was known for the veer offense that helped the Cougars lead the nation in total offense from 1966-1968.
